1.) Heat exhaustion/stroke & Sun stroke… Gatorade vs. Squincher. Gatorade is more of a performance drink (higher in sugar and not as good as squincher for maintaining body fluids). Signs of heat exhaustion or sun exposure that we need to be keen in recognizing early include: dark coloured urine, confusion, dizziness, fainting, headache, severe muscle cramps, nausea, pale skin, profuse sweating, rapid heart beat. If it progresses to heat stroke the symptoms will likely be as follows: very high body temperature, red/hot/dry skin (no sweating), dry swollen tongue, rapid pulse, throbbing headache, dizziness, collapse, eventual unconsciousness.
2.) Gloves… much of our work involves the need to protect our hands. We have the gloves in various sizes; you must use them when there is risk of injury to your hands.
3.) Follow up on Safety Forms. The new Sharepoint online services are rolled out and we are working on reliability of login and form submission.
4.) We as a company must be organized, efficient, personable, & safe… driven by quality and customer satisfaction. 8hr Work Day… less 15min morning and 15min afternoon break (30min unpaid lunch). Foreman – 15min safety ‘paperwork’. 8hrs work on-site… trip home (within Niagara) is unpaid. Come to work a few minutes early and be working at the assigned ‘start time’ (don’t show up at the assigned start time). Customers and SYE expect (and quote based on) 8hr work days.
